A Red Red Rose

Good morning everyone, not done much crafting for awhile as some nasty bug has laid me low for a couple of weeks but I'm getting better and have started to feel human again. Today I'm sharing a journal page that I've made for the Art Journal Journey challenge - If Music Be The Food Of Love. I've taken my inspiration from the Robert Burns poem "A Red Red Rose".

I covered my page with a piece of gift wrap.

Then I gave it a coat of gesso using a brayer. I used a My Craft Studio silhouette image for the couple  and added some tissue wrap music and some roses cut out of the gift wrap that I had left. I printed the Robert Burns poem.

Here is the poem,sorry it's a bit blurred.

Thank you for looking.
